Our skilled dentist and dental team are committed to meeting all of your dental needs for a healthy, happy smile. While we provide restorative treatments to repair teeth that have been damaged or decayed, as well as replacement options for lost teeth, we would much rather prevent damage from occurring in the first place. Dr. Ellis K. List provides preventive care to help your smile stay healthy for life. One of the most important ways to keep your smile in optimal health is to visit our office on a regular basis. During these routine visits, our team will provide you with a dental exam and cleaning. A dental exam and teeth cleaning in Durham, North Carolina, typically includes:

  • A thorough examination of your teeth, checking for signs of tooth decay and other forms of damage
  • A periodontal evaluation, which includes checking your gums for signs of periodontal disease
  • A thorough dental cleaning, which includes removing plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) from the teeth
  • Recommendations for any needed preventive or restorative treatments to improve and protect your dental health

We recommend that you visit our dental office every six months for a regular dental exam and teeth cleaning. To learn more and to schedule your next appointment, please contact us today. We look forward to seeing you at our office soon!
